Floro, Norway Cruise Port

Find yourself surrounded by snow-capped mountains and tiny forested islands during your trip to Floro, a much-loved patch for fishers and photographers alike. The fishing and ship building industries here have made Floro into a larger port than some other towns dotted along the fjords, so there's plenty for visitors to see and do during their time ashore.

Sightseeing in Floro

Spend some time ashore here and you'll find a great variety of things to see and do on your travels. Stick around town and visit the museum, which illustrates the history of the town's expansion; or head further out to find ancient rock carvings – or a secluded, remarkable medieval church.

Coastal Museum

Some cruises to Floro offer excursions to see the town's Coastal Musuem, where you'll be able to find out about the industries that sparked the modern town's origins in the nineteenth century. Learn about the discovery of oil in the North Sea, and its impact on the nation; elsewhere, you'll find a collection of ships moored as museum pieces, including a freight vessel over two hundred years old. Explore the visitor centre and you'll also find exhibits which highlight the natural history of the area – the perfect place to lend some historic and cultural context to your experience of Floro.

Kinn Church

Take a boat across open sea to the mountainous island of Kinn, where you'll find the beautiful, secluded church that has stood here for more than eight hundred years. Hailed as one of the finest examples of medieval Norwegian design, the church has at its hear t a remarkable carved altarpiece, and a solid soapstone altar  – but equally beautiful are the wooden saint reliefs that adorn the southern wall. Look up and you'll see impossibly intricate carved woodwork arching over the pews, with enough twisting Celtic patterning to rival the illuminations of the Lindisfarne Gospels.

Ausevika and Naustdal

If you'd prefer an adventure further inland, trips may be available during your time ashore to head out for Naustdal Village and the spectacular white-water rapids nearby – the perfect place to see some of coastal Norway's more accessible dramatic landscape. Continue to Ausevika and you'll discover some three hundred Stone Age rock carvings, including swirling motifs and depictions of humans, deer and other animals scored into the stone thousands of years ago.

Shopping in Floro

Floro's busy centre offers a great selection of shops for visitors spending some time ashore. Pick up some locally made handicrafts or an artwork from one of the town's galleries, or pick up a few bottles of beer from the renowned local breweries.

Eating Out in Floro

Floro offers a range of cafes and restaurants, most of which serve up the salmon and monkfish caught in the surrounding waters. Relax with a cup of coffee in a café looking out over the harbour, or take a seat in one of the local restaurants and enjoy a glass of locally-brewed guest ale.
